It Won't Be Pellom; Still No Word on Black, Davis

He IS looking back. This has to be a sign. - Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

One N. C. native grad transfer heading to Memphis; Davis situation quiet

N. C. State's 2013-14 roster, as of this instant, consists of just eight scholarship players: Tyler Lewis and Cat Barber at the point, Desmond Lee at the two, Ralston Turner and T.J. Warren on the wings, and BeeJay Anya, Kyle Washington, and Jordan Vandenberg in the post.

The interior, featuring two freshpersons and a rarely used fifth-year senior, appears to be the biggest concern. Recently, I speculated that adding George Washington graduate transfer David Pellom would make sense to bolster interior depth for a Pack team that has been largely gutted by graduation, early NBA defections, and transfers. Particularly due to the need and the fact that Pellom is a North Carolina native, it just made a lot of sense. However, I have no idea if Mark Gottfried and staff even reached out to the 6-8 power forward.

It's a moot point now, as Pellom will play out his eligibility for Josh Pastner at Memphis. The move makes a lot of sense for Pellom, as Memphis will lose big man Tarik Black to transfer and Adonis Thomas to the NBA (or some level of pro basketball if he is not drafted).

Black still has not made a decision on his future and has not really been linked to N. C. State. The silence on fan favorite Josh Davis has been deafening, but I am just going to go on believing that the prodigal son returns until I hear otherwise. And then I am still going to go on believing after that. Reality? Pshaw.
